This week is the 50th anniversary of the first 911 call. It took place in Hayleyville, Alabama. From this one call in a small town we grew something big: a nationwide emergency calling number. A treat to talk about it last night at awards.

No better day than today to read the work of David Carr, the one-of-a-kind media columnist who passed away 3 years ago today. Can't help but wonder what he would make of so much of what is happening in now--how we cover it and how we consume it.

I first met Ray Baum when he served on the Oregon Public Utility Commission. I got the chance to work with him again when he went on to serve on Capitol Hill. He was smart, decent & had a get it done attitude. He was the kind of public servant we need more of in Washington.
